Christmas has arrived at the yard:ARTspace this weekend with the first Create for Christmas workshop.
The tree is up, as are the fairy light, the crocheted snowflakes are out of the brown box, yes I found them easily this year!!
And to add an extra Christmas vibe, there are angels everywhere.
The workshop was fueled with special edition Christmas fingers. Like the tin?
With examples everywhere in 
sketch books, on fabric and feathers, this lovely group set 
to with Gum Arabic transfer, ink, 
wax, acrylic paint and bleach.
very individual work was created.
The Christmas twist was using glitter in the form of embossing powder to embellish finished pages.
What a glorious sight.
After 2 days of learning new processes and
being reminded of processes already in the back of our heads,
these beautiful books were made.
Some with very strong narratives.
Risks were taken with substrates.
And glitter was used in context.
The next mixed media workshop at www.theyardartspace.com will be a creative kick start for the new year on January 14-15, 2017, places are booking. The ideal Christmas present for the person who has everything...(tucked away in the art materials draw!!)

You can't beat creating your own book by your own hand. These are precious things. Beautiful results.
